Are you just trying to make sure that errors in the plugin don't cause your code to die? Which eval is great for. Or are you trying to restrict the plugin to only be able to perform a (very) limited amount of actions? Which Safe.pm should be great for.

If all you're trying to do is keep the plugin's errors from aborting your code, but still want it to be able to do anything that the rest of the codebase does, then eval is probably the best choice. Just log $@ after the eval so the plugin authors have a way of tracking down their errors.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
